Karachi to witness ‘hottest week of 2024’ next week, weather expert predicts

KARACHI: Weather expert Owais Hyder on Sunday predicted that the next week in Karachi could be the “hottest week of the year”.

“There is a possibility of an increase in heat intensity in the megalopolis next week,” the meteorologist said.

He said the mercury could be between 40 to 42 degrees Celsius from Tuesday to Thursday.

Amid excessive hot weather, people have been advised to stay indoors and hydrated by consuming adequate amount of liquids to avoid heatstroke.

Extreme heat in the metropolis is often coupled by a deficit in power supply, with some areas experiencing up to 15 hours a day of loadshedding.

Pakistan is increasingly vulnerable to extreme weather events, which scientists have linked to climate change.

The recent heat spell has gripped the metropolis for the past few weeks and it is forecast to prevail till the first week of June.
